Claire Hubbard - Trustee
Claire Hubbard is a trustee and became a Spontaneous Leaker in 2009. She was first diagnosed and treated in June 2014 and has been treated with multiple blood and fibrin glue patches in USA and at Royal Stoke hospital. She is married with two grown up daughters and lives in Staffordshire, surrounded by her extremely supportive family. She enjoys pottering in her greenhouse and preparing resources for children at school, where she can now work again within limited hours. Before leaking, Claire enjoyed exercise and ran the London Marathon in 2009; she would love to exercise again in the future, but for now must be satisfied with walking short distances when she can. As a trustee of the CSF Leak Association, Claire is determined to support leakers in any way she can. She has recently helped to facilitate cutting edge use of intrathecal gadolinium for detailed MRI scanning at Royal Stoke, by coordinating with doctors in the USA and neurologists here in the UK.
